What about Children's Privacy?
Children under the age of thirteen are allowed to upload graphics and images and to order products with their parent's consent. To order products, the child must indicate his or her age, submit his or her name and his or her mailing address and shipping address if different from the mailing address together with a valid credit card number. This is the only information collected from a child.
This information is used to fulfill the requested order; confirm shipment; complete record keeping including royalty entitlements and pay royalty fees, if any, and to advise the child concerning new Wordans products, services or policies.
Parents of children under the age of 13 have the option to consent to the collection of this information from their children or not. Such consent will not be used as consent for the dissemination of any of this information and the information will not be released by Wordans to third parties without the parents' consent except as may be required by law or upon court order.
Parents can review any information Wordans has received from a child and the parent can have that information deleted and the parent can forbid the collection of additional information from their child. If you want to review any information obtained from your child or if you want to have any information obtained from your child deleted from the Wordans records or to forbid any use of such information, you may send a request to Wordans Customer Support by logging into Wordans, going to:
Contact Us, and sending an email relating to Parental Notification. Alternatively, you may contact the Wordans Privacy Representative by phone, email, or letter at:
